DescriptionThis was made for a fan challenge (Harry Potter fandom) to make a "protective amulet" (as if it had been designed by one of the characters).
There are twelve "floating" units in the necklace. The number twelve signifies the whole of the universe, as it is made up of three times four, and three signifies the heavens, and four signifies the Earth. The links used for the "floating" units are brass with "Antique Copper" plating, ID=16mm, WD=2mm, AR=8. Inside each link is a 10mm round bead, attached by an eye-pin or wrapped wire to the link. The beads are all made of semi-precious stone, and all are associated with protection, to a greater or lesser degree.
The sections in between the floating units are Japanese Bullseye chain (Brass "Antique Copper" ID=9.2mm, WD=1.4mm, AR=6.57; Brass "Antique Copper" ID=7.6mm, WD=1.2mm, AR=6.33; Copper ID=4mm, WD=0.8mm, AR=5; Steel gold-plated ID=4mm, WD=1mm, AR=4). The choice of Japanese Bullseye was because it's mad-crazy with circles, circles, circles, and circles are symbols of protection.
Likewise, the necklace itself has no clasp, making it an unbroken circle.
